This is a preview of a photo/writing piece for my final except the final will be in chat book form.
we tried tuning distance on the wind up radio
in the heat of those american nights
mountain scapes between magazine pages
we sat in your room
on your bed
we sat close
the window was open
spring making itself known outside
we named the children we would never have
& said we never wanted
we spoke of autumn
& named the future grace
we imagined the shapes of clouds
on off white ceilings
we talked of taking freight trains west
& we talked of east coast beaches we had never sunk our toes in
we counted breathes
we spoke like we were in the movies
but the director had stormed off the set
& we were left to improvise off stage
we spoke of drinking under highway overpasses
& what if anything we would take from a burning house
we spoke of stairs & ladders & slides & slopes
we asked where super heroes go when they died
& why it only rains on mondays
& why we dont get out more
If anyone has any thoughts please let me know.
Keep in mind it will look and read differently in book form.
More pictures can be seen on my flickr.
Also if you have the means listen to the following songs, as they have been on repeat for the past few days and have been a huge influence and just kind of awesome in general.
Hot Water Music “Seein’ Diamonds” (Specifically 1:20- 1:47)
The Appleseed Cast “Ceremony”
Third Eye Blind “Motorcycle Drive By”
